Forbes is an award winning TV host, author and a 2010 inductee into the National Fitness Hall of Fame for her lifetime commitment to selling quality in-home fitness and wellness products. To date, Forbes has sold more than $2 billion dollars worth of products in this category. She is known worldwide for promoting the Jack Lalanne Juicer, the Living Well Health Master and for starring in the feature film about raw food called “Super Charge Me!”  

Forbes is on a continuing mission to promote health, vitality and fitness as a lifestyle and not a fad. She can be seen on television with a variety of health and fitness products on HSN, Ideal World-UK, Canadian Home Shopping and soon on QVC Germany and Japan because as Forbes says, “It seems living well and getting fit has no cultural barriers!”  The mother of twins, she and her husband live between Los Angeles, California and St. Petersburg, Florida.
Finally and foremost, Forbes believes that fitness needs to be a way of life.  She says, “My personal philosophy about health and fitness is that it is a lifestyle, not a fad.  Just like a sailboat in water, turn just one degree and over time you’re heading in a vastly new direction.  Your body will thank you!”
Fitness is a Lifestyle, not a Fad!
